Each day, women are making strides across fields in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. Historically, these Women in STEM have gone unrecognized, preventing young women from having access to role models who look like them. To change that, we have to start creating that representation. https://youtu.be/DqHO97LkVHU
Young women should be able to see someone who looks like them succeeding in the professional world. This creates STEM identity, which is the power of representation and sense of belonging creating purpose and sense of worth in associated fields. This can benefit future generations as more people feel comfortable to explore their interests. The Women in STEM project aims to demonstrate that there is no one “face of STEM”, it is ambiguous.
